Janosik Design Window Showroom in Prague, Czech Republic by Mjölk architects

 
December 1st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Mjölk architects

The way the Janošík Company promote themselves, be it their visual identity or advertising new products, made such an impression on us that we immediately accepted the offer to remodel their showroom in Prague. It is located on the ground floor of a block of flats from the period of the First Republic (1918–1939); The rooms had undergone a number of renovations and had changed tenants many times. And it REALLY showed. Lots of plasterboard, a grid ceiling from the 1990s and floor tiles of all shapes and colours. At the beginning we met with Jakub Janošík, who was in charge of the renovation, and we laid out the main objectives: to get to the original structure of the house by removing all the extra layers and to limit the number of samples on display. We did not want it to be just a room full of windows – we wanted to change it into something more homely. And it turned out pretty well. We uncovered the original concrete slabs supporting the ceiling and, hiding under the floor tiles, we found the original terazzo. Parts of the original parquetry were beyond repair and had to be replaced with new floor boards. Now, the entire showroom looks much cleaner and better-arranged. The light shades of the interior help the windows on display to stand out. Jakub’s wish was to stick to Czech design with the furnishing as well. The chairs are genuine TON, the lights are Bomma or Lasvit, the flowers from the Plevel flower shop sit in vases from the Dechem Design Studio. We are happy to say there is a lot to choose from! We are even happier there are Czech companies that care about the places they invite their customers to.

Vista Club Coworking in São Paulo, Brazil by Vasco Lopes arquitetura

Article source: Vasco Lopes arquitetura

Renovation of one floor of a commercial building.  The main intervention was to integrate the several spaces by means of glass partitions with wood panels. The wooden frames with large glass panels allow to integrate with the external view with minimum visual interference. Wood was used on the floor, the working tables and the furniture of the bar and the living room, and natural tones of gray and terracotta were used on the upholstery. The reference to raw materials, with the use of concrete, rustic wood, and apparent pipes and beams create a simple and comfortable atmosphere. The concrete slabs were painted white and there is indirect illumination through rails and hanging spots. The view of the green surrounding residential neighborhood was emphasized inside with a  reference of a green wall composed of dehydrated plants by the entrance.

Canalla Disco in Navarra, Spain by Vaillo+Irigaray Architects

 
November 29th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Vaillo+Irigaray Architects

This project aimed to re-organise an existing nightclub, whose leitmotiv was grounded in sparkling, coloured lights inside a dark box.

The nightclub is then conceived as a light, sound and movement tuner. Therefore the plan is based in a gradual composition of those three elements. The central part is shaped as an area for dancing and maximum vibration–convulsive, intense. The floor, walls and roof in the farthest zones–sober, welcoming–appear as golden boxes where the sparks of the central part can be captured and reflected in nuanced glittering lights A long bar going through the whole premises provides the backbone of this space gradual composition.

The opening of the new children’s playground at Ashburnham Community School in West London was met with shrieks of delight, as the children got a first taste of the recently transformed school grounds. The project was initiated and funded by The Bryan Adams Foundation, that has been supporting the school since 2014, and designed by Foster + Partners, working closely with playground designers Made From Scratch. The refurbishment is a key part of the school’s strategy to create a holistic learning environment for its pupils. It replaces asphalt play areas with a dynamic mix of hard and soft surfaces, natural vegetation, and specially designed play structures for the school children, while also incorporating state-of-the-art sports courts.
